strengthening possible. describing it as a rare hybrid superstorm, forecasters say sandy was created by an arctic jet stream wrapping itself around a tropical storm. the storm could cause up to 12 inches of rain and in some areas, as well as up to 3 feet of snowfall in the appalachian mountains. flooding has also expected to be a major problem. the national weather service has warned of record level flooding and life-threatening storm surges in coastal areas. the nuclear regulatory commission has announced it is taking special precautions for the storm. there are at least 16 nuclear reactors located within the path of the storm. six oil refineries are also in the storm's path. while the news media have been covering hurricane sandy around the clock, little attention has been paid to the possible connection between the storm and climate change. scientists have long warned how global warming would make north it planned to hurricanes more powerful. just two weeks ago, the proceedings of the national academy of sciences published a major study on the connection between warmer sea surface

bloomberg, citing superstorm sandy. the independent mayor wrote an op-ed for bloomberg.com saying he'll vote for the president because of his record on climate change. and it reads in part this. "the devastation that hurricane sandy brought to new york city and much of the northeast brought the stakes of tuesday's presidential election into sharp relief. one sees climate change as an urgent problem that threatens our planet. one does not. i want our president to place scientific evidence and risk management above electoral politics." again mayor bloomberg on the edge of issues that really affect this country that people don't take seriously and then they find out too late. an endorsement, of course, from mayor michael bloomberg for president obama. that's great, right? >> it is a fine endorsement. jon meacham, you're an historian. have you heard of an endorsement of a candidate that goes on to read this way? if the 1994 or 2003 version of mitt romney were running for president, i may well have voted for him. because like so many other independents, i have found the past four years to be, in
